Esoterica plans special Samhain radio show Oct. 31

LAKE COUNTY – Esoterica, a program featuring world, new age and sacred music, will present a special program on Friday, Oct. 31 at 11 p.m. on KPFZ 88.1 FM.

The program is a radio play based upon actual Wiccan ceremonies.

Wicca is religion which is nature-based, generally believing in the feminine Goddess in Her many aspects as well as a male God.

Wiccans celebrate a solar "sabbat" eight times a year with Samhain (sow-en) or Halloween being the old Celtic New Year. They do not worship the devil or Satan, but celebrate the joys in life recognizing the changing seasons and our own life journey.

Samhain is the last of the three harvest festivals preceded by Lammas on Aug. 1 and the Autumn Equinox. It is a time of reflection on our lives, what we've accomplished during the year and what is left undone. It is also a time to honor the ancestors who have gone on before us.

The radio play will include many of these principles. The stories of Persephone and Hades and the aspect of the Goddess Hecate are the principal archetypes. Your are invited to look at your shadow side with the hosts.

The play will also include Celtic- and Renaissance-influenced music from Blackmore's Night, Celtic Woman, Loreena McKennett and Reclaiming among others. The players are Andy and Annie Weiss, Jeff Hayes, Stazi Adair, Sandra Wade and Rhyschenda Owens.

The program rebroadcasts on Thursday at 11 a.m.

For information call KPFZ at 263-3640.
